22 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge and off-white head. Mild woody and solid grape/orangefruit aroma. Flavour starts sweet with a nice caramel malt base and quickly being complimented with a nice orange and grapefruit hops flavour. Gains a light liqourice note towards the finish. Finish is dry and solid bitter with a continued lingering fruit flavour.

An amber beer with no head. The aroma is sweet caramelic, with a touch of hops. The flavor is sweet and a bit sticky with notes of caramel, leading to a slightly bitter end. Boring compared to my expectations.

Hazy orange/brownish with white head. Smells of hops, barley and honey. The taste is mainly hops with influence of citrus and wheat. Hoppy and bitter aftertaste.

omhper (25154) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2002
Bottled.. Orange, hazy appearance. Well balanced hop... Err.. No, let’s start over. Extremely grapefruity hop aroma. Rich malt backbone, soft mouthfeel, and then hops, hops, hops. Brutally bitter finish.

Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso. Very nice English style bitter, very straightforward and tasty. It is what it is.

(As Brutal Bitter). Cloudy amber beer with a thick white head. Soft palate, a little frothy in the mouth. Mild hops from the mid to the soft and slightly dry finish. Really not Brutal after all! Original rating 2.9

24th July 2010
Cloudy orange - amber beer. Good white head. Light and crisp palate. Light creamy malt cut through with crisp fresh orangey hops. Crisp minerally finish. Still not brutal but very drinkable!
